After three consecutive sell-out events over the past year, we're excited to introduce our last VEF Momentum Connect event before a short summer break.

As part of our "Momentum Connect" series, this event, dubbed "Leadership" will feature a speaker and Q&A session as well as ample networking time to help aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs connect with the people, resources and answers they need to succeed - all in an inviting, fun and casual environment.

Our speaker for the evening, Jon Bixby CEO and Co-Founder of Strangeloop Networks, will share valuable lessons on leadership, focusing on the big picture and achieving measurable results. He will share his insights in integrating these lessons to position your start-up for success in these challenging economic times.
